I'm having a problem with my Leon. He's almost 3 months old and is an avid and aggressive people chewer, or at least he is to me, which I'm trying heavily to discourage. It doesn't seem to be working though and it is beginning to hurt quite a bit. He bites at hands, feet, arms and legs. I think I'm surprised that he hasn't broken the skin yet it's gotten so hard. A few times he's nipped at my face too. That always surprises me quite a bit and causes me to jerk away, not a habit I want to get into since I don't want him to think that he's the dominant one in the house.
I've tried using toys as distractions when he goes and grabs at me or anyone else, yelping or saying ow loudly and walking away and ignoring him. Unfortunately these all have a quite undesired side effect. It causes him to start barking. It's ear peircingly loud and has me afraid that this is going to disturb the next door neighbors since we live in an apartment, or my roommates when they're sleeping upstairs. The only way he will stop barking is if he starts chewing on me or grabbing my clothing again which I never let him do, but sometimes he just refuses to let it go. I know this is extremely bad behavior and am at a loss what to do about it. I also try to take him on at least an hour long walk twice daily. Has anyone else had this problem and if so how did you work with it?
